Romeo Ferraris tests with Giulietta TCR in Valencia
Valencia, March 16, 2016: Yesterday ended the official tests of the Giulietta Romeo Ferraris TCR on the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia.
Test Day 1: “We can be moderately satisfied with the work done today. It is still early to judge the pure performance, but the lap times were interesting, the car has proved reliable and we had no major problems during the day. Clearly there is still work to do, especially with regard to the balance and set-up, but the potential is good and we have a good base to continue the development. ”
Test day 2: “The second day of testing took place without problems and with good results, we were able to work on the engine setting, and the responses were quite positive. We can be satisfied of the level of performance, although certainly we still have to wait for the first race in Bahrain to assess precisely the forces involved.
The car is reliable and after these two days on the track, we can only look with optimism to the season “
Michela Cerruti: “This is the first test we did on a long track, and we were satisfied to see that everything works. I think the Giulietta has a very good basis, but clearly room for improvement is wide, especially with regard to its behaviour in cornering. We would have liked to have more time for testing and developing, but that is true for everybody! Still, it’s good to see that we did not have any major hiccups and we are confident for the kick-off in Bahrain.”
Ferraris team is pleased with the tests at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit and looks very positive for the start of the official season to be held in Bahrain April 3, 2016.
